Let’s swatch the Sephora Colorful shadows, sold individually for $9 (but often on sale for $6)! One thing that’s great about this line of eyeshadows is that they offer four different finishes: Matte, Shimmer, Glitter, and Metal. They have about 75 shades available (heavy on the neutrals), and we’ll be looking at 25 of them today.
These are the shades we’ll be swatching today:
The formula on these is a bit thinner than brands such as Sydney Grace or Natasha Denona which tend to feel thicker. But the quality is still very nice and there’s a large variety to choose from.
Swatches – Mattes
Swatches – Light Shimmers
Swatches – Darker Shimmers
This set of shimmers/glitters is darker than the first set. I accidentally included a couple shades that I believe are now discontinued: Tahitian Pearl and Be Chic
Swatches – Metal
Next swatch photo shows the four metal effect shades together along with two glitter shades that I thought would be good for comparison. The shades First Light and Demanding do have some sparkle rather than a smooth metallic finish even though they are defined as Metal finish by Sephora.
These come in individual plastic containers (which seem a bit excessive and wasteful, honestly). Normally when I buy single shadows from other brands they come in a cardboard sleeve. I suspect Sephora’s packaging is geared towards consumers who might only buy a few shadows. We’re not living that life here at Stef’s Edge. We’re removing the shadows from their plastic prison and homing them in magnetic palettes where they can all be friends.
If you just open the top lid, you can use the eyeshadow without removing it from the package. If you want to depot it, you just have to open the bottom section and lift it right out. There are little notches in the side to open whichever section you want.
